This natural turquoise ring is going to be sold by the Austen family at the Sotheby's auction house in London on July 10th.
It will be auctioned with a note, dated 1863, written by Eleanor Austen to her niece Caroline Austen. The estimate is $30,000-$46,000.
Personally, I think the price is crazy, and it would be so much nicer if the family donated it to a museum for all to enjoy.
But it will be quite interesting to see what it sells for! ($236,000. wow!)
